tuesday | feb 14:
i realize it was valentine’s day but matt had a ton of work to do and i wanted to get the kids out of the house so he could work quietly. we headed over to the bounce palace and for $15, these kids bounced their little hearts out. and the best part was that from 4:30 to 6:00 we had the whole place to ourselves. i even got my bounce on too!
after bouncing, we went to eat at Chik-fil-A because i was craving it like a mad-woman. yes…i drive 25 minutes to eat there. thankfully they are finally building one in our town. maybe it’s not so good. =)
we gave the boys their v-day buckets and mama got snuggles.
cute shirt i bought for marshall’s v-day gift.

took the day off because matt haaaad to go up to Incline Village for work. gorgeous view, right? yeah, i’m a little jealous that this is work for him. lucky dog.
i went up to my Gram’s house to help my mom clean out her closets. found some real treasures in there. i also had to take pictures of the piano she left to me. i am faced with a major dilemma: i do not have room for it. but i’ve wanted it since i was a little girl. my Gram has had this piano since 1959 and this is the piano my mom played growing up. Gram was a music teacher and choir director at her church. music was her life. the piano is more of a part of her than anything else on this earth. so i guess you can say it’s important to me. i am so torn up inside about it. how can i just sell it? what can i get rid of in this house so i can make room for it? it’s nearly impossible to do that in this 1000 square foot house of ours. i swear…in 1 year we will probably be in a new house that would have plenty of room for this gem. i have a feeling i’m going to regret selling it. but what choice do i have? must pray on it some more.
i know you guys have seen my phone case once or twice.

saturday | feb 18:
today was my gram’s memorial service. i took some snapshots throughout the day.
gibson and my niece. they are 8 months apart.
in honor of my gram, i found some vintage silhouette pieces at michael’s to make a necklace to wear to her service.
this sunset pretty much tells the story of the day. even with all the darkness and clouds, there is always a light that is bright enough to shine through. you just have to look.
sunday | feb 19:
O.M.G. we bought a truck! eeeeekkk! we have wanted this exact car for like a decade now. every time we find one, we can never fully commit to it. something just always keeps us from closing the deal. until last night. matt found a great deal so we went that evening to look at it. neither of us wanted to leave it there but we decided to sleep on it. the dealership opened at 10:00 and we arrived at 10:01, ready to sign.
it’s so pretty and it roars. it roars and makes my heart melt.
the temp says 54 degrees…but it felt more like 66. i started off doodling at the kitchen table when marshall went down for his nap but the sunshine called for me. i dropped the pen and picked up my new embroidery project and headed out back. i let the sun soak my feet with warmth and it was the absolute best thing for my soul.
how about a little sneak at one of the three new stitchery project i have up my sleeve.
well that’s about it folks. it was kind of a monster of a week. a lot going on with us and i am enjoying it all.
hope you had a great week too!
